Useless management, unreasonable routes AVOID
Management always blame drivers for the companies mistakes, for example today i had an hour and a half drive between jobs, manager rings me to tell me i should get there quicker. There is no job progression. Manager is built like an egg. No company benefits. Consistently dont pay overtime correctly. Told when i can take my holidays and refused my own requests. Vehicles are poorly maintained and when they breakdown its our fault. Cant wait to find alternative employment and get away from this place.

Friendly and supportive work environment
I have worked for PHS a while now and this job is perfect for me as i like working on my own but within a team environment with back up and support when required, it's always busy with daily and Saturday overtime when I want to and lots of early start times means earlier finishes so more family time, routing is flexible when 360 is hit and miss along with the sat Nav and on a personal note I have always found management to be extremely supportive when the need arises special thanks to our manager and big kudos for the counselling available now proving PHS are a modern forward looking company who have promoted two ex drivers from within and are serious about work life balance these can be dark days but there's a positive light shining from PHS.
Driver Trainer in Buckley, Flintshire
I have worked for the company for over 10 years and have enjoyed the experience. The pay is reasonable, as are the conditions. The training is vastly improved to when I started and the support at depot level is good. I have a van (my office) which I take home, no travel to work costs. I am out and about each day meeting different people and visiting a vast array of customer premises, factories, offices, museums, schools, ferries, National Trust properties, the list is endless. The work is nowhere near as hard as it was when I first started and I would recommend giving it a go.

Fast-Paced but Fair
A tough role to begin with but once you're in the routine of the job it's fine. If you're happy to work then there is always overtime. Management are fair and can be talked to with any issues.
